    I am really enjoying this hard drive. I recently went on vacation and needed an external hard drive to drop the photos from my DSLR on to. This drive was awesome as it was already set to work on both Windows and Mac which Was great since I use both. I didn't have to format the drive and it was a simple program install to work on the Mac. I still am not even halfway full and I shot pictures in raw format which take up more space. I took tons of pictures. Definitely recommend this external drive.

    I work on two desktops, an iMac and a PC, and I need to have my files available and backed up for both. I can and do use Dropbox, but I also want a physical, portable drive. I chose the Seagate Backup Plus Slim 1tb External USB 3.0/2.0 Portable Hard Drive because it is compatible with both systems, with no reformatting required. It has performed as advertised and as I had hoped. It was easy to set up, moves seamlessly between my two computers, and has fast transfer times.

    This is my second Seagate external hard drive, The previous one was not used extensively and sat for a long time. I called tech support and they were able to help me even though it was way out of warranty. Nice people, So when I needed one for work I bought another Seagate. They have a great reputation. The set up was super easy and it is running beautifully. I will never be without an external drive again since I experienced a computer crash and lost so much data. I would recommend Seagate to all.

    This external hard drive is 1 terabyte and very affordable as well. I have been using it since I obtained it and it has worked fine, no hiccups or issues. It's great for music and movies; better to drop a bunch of them in your external rather than bog down your internal hard drive with a bunch of media files. In my opinion, having an external hard drive these days is mandatory for myself....If you like your downloading like me and want somewhat of an endless box to drop them in, this is for you

    Corrupts Data

    I put all my files on this as a back up to go between Mac and PC. The transfer from Mac to HD was flawless. About 6 months later when I got a PC I went to put music and photos on it. Most of the data was corrupted in some way. The music files stopped playing at certain points and the photos had funky colors and shapes on them. I tried deleting and putting files on again, same problem with the photos but in with different colors and shapes. I will be attempting to return this, hopefully there is a 1 year warranty .

    This is my 4th Seagate external drive, and I am very pleased with this latest one. In my opinion, Seagate tech help is the best, so that's why I bought this one for my new Windows 10 computer. The only thing I don't like is the Seagate Dashboard. On my previous Windows 7, I used Seagate Manager which was wonderful, but not available for Windows 10. A Seagate tech person recommended using the File History built in back up system on Windows 10, and it's really great. Similar to my old Seagate Manager.

    Great compact hard drive

    This is a very nice portable hard drive. It's compact, easy to install, and easy to use. It works well and is a good value for the price. If I have to nitpick one thing, it would be that I don't love the installed software. It's not that it is bad or doesn't work well, it just feels a little dated and clunky. For a sleek-looking device, you'd expect similarly polished software. But, it's hardly worth complaining about the software when the device looks great and works great. I'd recommend it to anyone needing a compact drive.

    Very disappointed with this purchase. Got it just prior to my husband leaving for a deployment to load movies for him to watch while he's gone. Got everything loaded and ready and it worked fine when he left. Stop working this past Monday which is just a few weeks after purchase. Went completely kaput. Very bummed that a product of this caliber couldn't last a few weeks. He'll be deployed for another two months at least and has nothing remotely entertaining available to him anymore.

    Outstanding Portable Drive for Backup or Transport

    The Seagate Backup Plus Slim USB Drive is easy to setup, install and use. The user interface is intuitive and makes backing up data a snap. It is also a convenient and easy to use medium for transporting data between locations and devices. The 1TB capacity is more than adequate to meet my needs. The compact size makes storing the drive in a smaller safe or fire box a snap. Seagate dependability at a great price. A real value. I'm glad I bought this particular unit and I highly recommend it.

    1TB, Seagate, USB 3.0 what's not to like

    I got this portable drive to alternate my work Virtual PC in VMWare workstation back and forth between my Surface Pro 2 tablet and my pc that I usually use for connecting to work. So far it's been very reliable and quite fast using both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0. I do with it were like some of the other seagate drives where you could swap out the interface module. My laptop has eSATA and my Surface Pro 2 has USB3.0. Be nice to have high speed on both machines. So far tho, very reliable, quiet and haven't needed external power.

    The last seagate backup hard drive I bought had very easy to understand, step by step instructions for several basic operations. This one did not. I was mainly interested in making a mirror image of the hard drive to include programs and data. I was unable to find that option even in the online information for this item. We aren't all computer geeks that can navagate gadgets instinctively. If I wanted something for long term, I'd spend a bit more and get the solid state hard drive.

    I was buying the Mac recommended external hard drives, but they had run out of stock, so I bought this drive that was suitable for Mac and PC. Since I was using it on a Mac, I was a bit concerned since I had read that some PC external Drives would not work well with my Macs. That was not the case with this drive. It runs every bit as quietly and efficiently as the Mac External WD Drives. I could not be happier with this drive. It does what it is supposed to do with no muss, no fuss.

    I had to get an external hard drive for my video class and this one didn't disappoint. The only downside I experienced was having to download a program to use it on a Mac. Now with my personal Mac that's no problem at all, but the school's wouldn't work because I had to have an admin password to download programs. So keep that in mind when buying this. Other than that little inconvenience it all worked out. I was able to take things from the hard drive on a Mac, just not put them in.

    DO NOT BUY! Bad product, terrible service

    Drive failed after two uses, lost all my data including family photos etc.. Almost impossible to find a number on their website or even any chat, for help. Website tech support is worthless. Shipped (at my expense) device back to seagate as it was still under warranty. Then received it back and it failed AGAIN. Backup keeps halting with no explanation. Their software instructions are virtually nill and inexcusably unhelpful. I will NEVER AGAIN buy any Seagarbage produce period.

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    I bought this as a back up drive and as a way to transfer files from one computer to another. I have spent hours trying to transfer files. I have watched all the tutorials. I simply cannot get it to work. I get to the final stage, and the drive just locks up. Nothing happens. I want to return it, but i have a full backup of my old computer on it. I have deleted it, but I don't think that's enough. I doubt that Best Buy will give me my money back after i smash it with a sledge hammer, but I'm going to find out.

    A terrific size for a portable external hard drive! And, it's 1 TB of memory. It'll hold several backups! It's size is perfect to bring with us to our summer home!......Make sure it's Windows compatible....the first one I purchased was for a Mac, but I was reassured at that time by the salesman that it was an Apple product, but would work with a Mac or Windows compatible PC.....He was wrong! If you buy, make sure that the salesman knows which one you need........they aren't all aware of this!!

    I bought a new computer, so i thought I would need a new external hard drive. I did research reviews on both Best Buy and Amazon. After reading all the reviews, I decided this was the drive for me. Plenty of storage and was easy to operate. I didn't notice until I got home that it came with additional one drive storage for two years, free.. When I got it home, it was a breeze to set up and you can either set it up to back up continuously , or use the snapshot feature, to do a fast one time back up

    Great and simple hard drive if you need more space

    The Seagate Backup Plus Slim 1TB External Hard Drive works great for those computers that need just a bit more space for extra documents and downloads! It helps me exponentially by storing all of my extra recordings and software; this allows my computer to run faster now that it has a cleaner internal hard drive! However, the hard drive itself can take quite a bit of time to load all of its files for the owner's viewing pleasure. Despite this, I'd like to thank Best Buy and Seagate for the sale!

    External hard drives aren't by nature exciting--the Seagate is no exception! And that's just fine. It's a backup-backup for me, and it does just what I need it to. I don't use the fancy stuff, just "Send to..."; and that way I get an effective, efficient backup up for the 2 - 3 computers I rotate through several times a week. It's a bit heavier than the one I generally carry around, but it's sturdy. So, that's ok because it really sits on my office shelf when I'm not backing up my backups once a month.
